Third Grade-October 7th Class

This week we had a pop quiz on the key words from chapters 1 and 2.  The quizzes need to be signed by a parent and returned next Thursday.  If your child did not do well on today's quiz please stress the importance of paying attention during class.  I often ask the class to underline the definition of the key words when we come across them in the text; and I ALWAYS reiterate the meaning of the word and follow up by asking a member of the class to tell me the definition.  The key words are also highlighted in the activities and end of chapter test.  Those who pay attention during class and utilize the study guides that are on the website for our text book should have no problem retaining this information.

We covered chapter 3, Christ Will Come Again,  in our book tonight.  Three new key words were introduced tonight: second coming, Last Judgement and Heaven.  Please see that your child knows the meaning of these key words.  They will likely show up in a pop quiz in the near future.  The first three questions of the chapter 3 test on page 42 would be an excellent study help for learning the definitions of these terms.  We did the chapter test as a class, so everyone should have the correct answers written down in their text book.

Tonight we learned about the third joyful mystery of the rosary, the birth of Jesus.  Everyone was given a coloring page that illustrates this mystery and asked to tell their families about it.
Third Joyful Mystery: The Birth of Jesus
We played Build the Church tonight using key words.  I had wanted to play a fun bingo type of game called Saint Search but the class was too interested in talking in fooling around during lesson time and that ate up the time allocated for our game.

Homework for this week is the Project Disciple portion of the chapter, pages 40 and 41. The activities on these pages correlate to what we learned in class tonight.
